Akatia is a local NGO based in Cote d'Ivoire dedicated to the care, rehabilitation, and conservation of chimpanzees.

We need your help to start building a crucial rehabilitation center.

We need to raise $50,000 to build our camp and provide formula, food and veterinary care for our first 10 chimps.   The $50,000 will be used for construction, equipment purchases, travel and transport of goods and people during the start up phase, and running costs such as food and formula for our first few months operating with approximately 10 baby and toddlers. These little guys need your help!


Payments made through MightyCause go directly to Akatia's bank account and are the best way to support our work.


PayPal donations will be made through our partner organization, Project Primate Inc., a US 501 (c) 3 organization, and are tax deductible.
